Match Preview

Bedwas hoping the weather gods don't intervene

Bedwas travel to the Gnoll the home of Neath RFC on Saturday hoping the weather gods don’t intervene this week and the game will go ahead at the scheduled time of 2-30pm.

Head coach Ian Gardner names the same starting fifteen which would have taken on Newport last week were it not for a waterlogged pitch. The one change is on the bench where Tom Devine comes in for Dan Preece at loose head prop.

Neath made the long trip to Colwyn Bay last weekend to take on RGC 1404 RFC and were on the wrong end of a 66 points to 3 reverse so it’s likely they will be hoping for better in front of their own supporters.

Whilst Bedwas have won four of the last five encounters against Neath the team have prepared well for this game as they look to kick start what has been a stop-start season.

The twenty three players named are:

15. Aaron Bramwell, 14. Pat Lewis, 13. Adam Williams, 12. Mike Callow, 11. Pat Howard, 10. Steffan Jones, 9. Tom Rowlands; 1. Bryn Toms, 2. Alun Rees ©, 3. Dan Suter, 4. Craig Hudd, 5. Geraint Edmunds, 6. James Richards, 7. David McGuigan, 8. Andrew Waite.


16. Rhys Hutcherson, 17. Dale Rogers, 18. Tom Devine, 19. Gareth Allen, 20. Ben Thompson, 21. Luke Crane, 22. Lewis Evans, 23. Mike Hathaway.
